It may not be a World title fight but I think the fans are looking forward to this more than probably any fight this year! That's right... It's Kell Brook Vs Matthew Hatton! The young skillful prospect against the tough experienced warrior.
There has been no trash talk between the fighters but we all know they will both do their talking in the ring. Neither of them will be holding back!.. Brook is on his way to the top and he says will not let Matthew Hatton get in his way but Hatton knows that this one of his last chances to reach the top.
This will be Hattons 50th fight in his 12 year career and he is yet to reach his goal of a World title which will make him as big as older brother Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton. So far he was won 42 of his 49 fights with only 16 by KO. 'Magic' is definitely the underdog in this fight but he is adamant that he is fine with this.
''I enjoy being the underdog'' said Hatton ''Im a stubborn character by nature and people are making me a massive underdog going into this fight, I certainly don't see it this way.''
He is confident that his experience will be the thing that gets him through this fight, and if we're judging experience by number of fights and quality of opponents then he definitely does have bags of it!

''I think he's gunna bring out the best in me... It's going to be a packed out crowd and i'm looking to dazzle. I'm looking forward to it now.'' said Brook earlier this month.
The 'Special One' has not said much else in the build up to this fight but i'm sure he will do his talking in the ring like he usually does, but Hatton will make it Brook's hardest fight which is why every true boxing fan needs to watch this on March 17th.
